New Adventures: Peru here I come!

In case you haven’t heard, I’m going to Peru this summer! Leaving on Friday, May 17th actually… so very soon! I am pretty excited so I thought I’d update you with my plans.

Where:Peru! 5 days in Puerto Maldonado, 25 days in the amazon at the Amazon Research and Conservation Center (ARCC), and about 7 traveling mostly around Cusco and Machu Picchu

Why: Back when I was traveling with Ian in Fiji/New Zealand he told me about this opportunity to work with Fauna Forever, an environmental non-profit agency doing research in the amazon in Peru. He’s been there before and is there now and says it is amazing. I wanted to take a trip somewhere awesome (and environmentally focused) so why not get some research experience and help out at the same time!

Will you be blogging? I’m going to try to blog, but unfortunately (or probably fortunately) there isn’t any wi-fi in the middle of the jungle, so you can expect most of my posts to be retroactive. I will, however, try to make a post of two once I get there and while in Puerto Maldonado and maybe one or two during my travels afterwards.

About Meg LaFollette

I studied abroad in Fiji for 5 months in 2012 and absolutely fell in love with traveling! I went to New Zealand right after and then Peru this summer. When not traveling (and sometimes during) I love healthy, environmentally conscious living. Animals, biology, horses, and behavior are other passions of mine.
